It used to be that laser hair removal was only a female thing. Laser hair removal used to be mostly for male bodybuilders, swimmers, models, or exotic dancers. Not so anymore. More and more, men are opting for the same grooming rights as women; including smooth body skin.
Hair waxing was more popular in the past, however is gradually falling out of favor because it’s quite painful and not permanent. Shaping eyebrows or beard line, the area around their ears or the back of the neck, chest, and back are the most popular Laser Hair Removal areas for men. Most men don’t necessarily want it all removed, but they do want it thinned out.
Modern lasers treat unwanted hair quickly and safely. During a Laser Hair Removal procedure the pigment within hair (melanin) absorbs the laser light and converts it into heat, destroying the hair follicle without damaging the skin. Thus, the follicle cannot produce new hair. All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. Laser light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair.
Resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be effectively treated. For this reason, Laser Hair Removal treatments must be repeated until all hair follicles have passed through the growing phase. Usually around 6 treatments are needed with an intervals of 4-6 weeks. Some areas like a back may require more treatment sessions due to ticker skin and stronger hair follicles in that area.
For best results Laser Hair Removal treatments are customized according to the skin color, hair texture, and body site. Due to a large surface areas (chest or back) Laser Hair Removal for men used to be a long procedure, sometimes longer than an hour. New Laser Hair Removal machines are able to cover large skin areas at high speed, treating numerous hair follicles with each light pulse. A small area usually take five minutes to treat, while a full back may require 20-30 minutes. Involving no downtime, you can continue with all your regular activities immediately after the treatment.
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate Laser Hair Removal treatment well, and describe the sensation similar to a rubber band snap. The majority of the clients are comfortable with just some local cooling. Laser Hair Removal complications are minimal in the hands of an experienced technician. Mild skin irritation usually resolves soon after the procedure. It is important to avoid prolonged sun exposure after the Laser Hair Removal procedures to avoid complications.

At age 65, I thought I had done everything possible to regain a more youthful appearance. I had recently undergone a facelift, eye surgery, and a hair plant procedure, and I was faithfully following a facial cream regimen. But still, the hollowing of my cheeks and the wrinkles on my forehead were tell-tale signs of aging, and I was not truly happy with my appearance. After literally one visit to Dr. Avakian, I had regained a youthful look I never thought I would ever see again. I just can’t ... Read more »
